I'm a face soaper but thinking about a bowl. Is there a reason why? or am I trying to find something else to buy. Wisdom and opinions needed please.
My face doesn’t take too well to scrubbing anything against it. This is why I will use a gentle face wash as opposed to an abrasive one like a scrub / exfoliating wash. I also get less irritation painting lather on. Because I don’t really scrub the lather on, terms like ‘splay’ and to a degree ‘backbone’ are lost on me. But yes, I too like to make lather in a bowl, and to apply it gently with nice soft brush tips.I bowl lather. I do this to ensure that I get a good consistency of lather for each shave. I also find that I get less irritation and ingrown hairs when I just paint the lather on, as opposed to scrubbing my face to lather up. YMMV.
I assume that's a DE, I have little knowledge of those razors though I like using mine, I only have one a DE89. I only bought it to ease my way into straight razors. I do like that Edwin Jagger but have gone nuts buying straights, well sort of only into the 20's at present.It's a Blackbird, I would reach for it before anything else so I thought what's the point in keeping everything else. If I want a change I'll swap soaps and splash. We'll see how it goes anyway.
